Beaufort Sea Coastal Geoscience Research
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The western Arctic coast is among the most rapidly changing coastlines in the world and one of the most sensitive to climate change. The research objective is to improve our knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and reduce the impacts of natural changes and industrial or community developmen...


Environmental change at Duck Hawk Bluffs, SW Banks Island: from a forested to glaciated Arctic
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The research team proposes to revisit Duck Hawk Bluffs (DHB), southwest Banks Island, the “type section” for the formerly reported subsurface record. DHB offers an exceptional exposure along the north shore of Thesiger Bay, measuring 8 km long and up to 60 m high. Previous work assumed that the bluffs were composed of an undeformed “layer-cake” stratigraphy recording discrete depositional events ...


Coastal Geoscience Research in the Beaufort Sea and Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lintern, Gwyn
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The western Arctic coast is a rapidly changing coastline and one of the most sensitive to climate change in the world. The research objective is to improve our knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and reduce the impacts of natural changes and industrial or community development. The proj...


Assessing the potential for Environmental Sensitivity Index mapping in the Arctic using Synthetic Aperture Radar
Principal Investigator: Duffe, Jason A
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: (1) fly oblique helicopter videography along the Beaufort Sea shoreline from the Alaska/Yukon border to the Northwest Territories/Nunavut border; (2) using conventional methods, interpret helicopter videography and create an Environmental Sensitivity Index map. This will consist of a vector shapefile of shoreline types; and (3) using satellite rad...


Geological conditions affecting industrial and community development in the coastal and nearshore regions of the western Canadian Arctic - year 4/4
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steven M
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009 2008 2007
Summary: The western Arctic coast is among the most rapidly changing coastlines in the world and one of the most sensitive to climate change. The objective is to improve knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and reduce the impacts of natural changes and industrial or community development. Spring...


Hazards, Sea-Level Rise and Climate Change Impacts on Arctic Coasts
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: This project is aimed at examining coastal change in the Beaufort Sea region. The primary objectives of the research are: 1) monitoring coastal stability and the processes which affect it (winds, waves, sea ice, etc.), 2) mapping coastal features, sediment properties, and ice conditions in the near-shore regions of the Mackenzie Delta and at coastal monitoring sites, 3) monitoring vertical ground...


Effects of climate change on coastal geomorphology and benthic biotic communities, southwestern Banks Island
Principal Investigator: Edinger, Evan N
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: Climate change is affecting coastlines and coastal communities across Arctic Canada. Communities in the Western Arctic, including Sachs Harbour, have described a variety of effects, including warmer temperatures, reduced sea ice thickness, longer duration of open water in summer, increased wave activity, and new or early arrivals of migratory animals. These effects can have a variety of impacts ...


Integrated Coastal Zone Management Planning for the Husky Lakes in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Hoyt, Andrea J.
Licenced Year(s): 2001 2000
Summary: This study will explore concerns of Tuktoyaktuk residents regarding development of the coastal, marine and aquatic zones in the Husky Lakes area and will develop a coastal zone plan to guide management decisions. The study will concentrate on human uses and ecological processes, looking at the land-water interface in this unique area. The researcher will travel between Tuktoyaktuk and Husky Lakes...


Coastal Impacts of Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The Coastal Impacts project on the Beaufort Sea coast has two complementary objectives: 1. To improve our understanding of coastal processes; 2. To develop methods for prediction of coastal impacts of changing climate. Field work will be performed in the modern Mackenzie Delta, along the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula coast, and at North Head if time permits. Collaborative field work in Ivva...


Coastal evolution and sedimentary processes in the Mackenzie Delta and Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula region
Principal Investigator: Hill, Philip R.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The researchers will examine the rate of coastal change in the outer Mackenzie Delta region in order to understand the factors contributing to present delta formation and coastal erosion, and to understand how global climate warming may affect coastal change. Surveys on beaches, sand bars and delta lakes will be conducted....
